Forum: movies Subject: Archive of current Middle East News

Working with WorldlinkTV, the Internet Archive is archiving and providing non-commercial access to a TV program that is of timely interest. Mosaic selects, translates, and repackages news programs from the Middle East for a western audience. It is facinating. (they don't have al Jazeera, unfortunately).

I find this interesting because it can show a role for Internet libraries helping people understand the world based on current information (rather than solely older background material). You could always go to the library to get the world's daily newspapers, now our challenge is to do that for the world's tv news reports.

This is a step. Hope you like it. (we wanted to get something out there even tough all the metadata and presentation are not done).
